11 Ways to Spend Mother's Day With Your Family

FacebookTwitterGoogle+TumblrPinterest

Mother’s Day is this Sunday and while it is a day to celebrate moms, I believe it is also a day to celebrate the people that made us mothers. I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Mother’s day than with my family. I want to make it a day that we are all together doing things that we love to do.

Last year was my first Mother’s Day with two kids. Avery was only a few months old at the time and the only thing that I wanted to do the entire day was sleep. We were still in the newborn and not sleeping stage and I was so exhausted from getting up several times in the middle of the night. This year, with everyone older, I can’t wait to get out of bed and enjoy our day together. There are so many ways to spend mother’s day with your family, it’s hard to pick just one!

    Spring is such a gorgeous time of year. I love bring sandwiches and snacks and laying down a blanket in the park for a nice family picnic. It's so great to enjoy the outdoors while watching the girls run around in the grass.

    Living in the city, we walk everywhere. Usually it's to get from point A to point B and rarely just to get outside and leisurely walk around. I'd love to go on a family walk and enjoy the beautiful city we live in with no agenda at all! 

  • Grab a Sweet Treat 6 of 12

    This might sound a little bit crazy, but I would love to go to the gym with my family on Mother's Day. Everyone in our family loves going and each of us enjoys it for a different reason. As long as everyone is having fun, it's okay with me!

    Sometimes after a busy week, all you want to do on the weekend is be a little bit lazy. Mother's Day is a perfect excuse to do it. Stay in your pajamas all day and cuddle up on the couch watching your favorite movies and munching on snacks together as a family.
